Yemen jet crashes in Indian Ocean


A Yemeni airliner with 150 people on board has crashed in the Indian Ocean near the Comoros archipelago, officials there say.

“We don’t know if there are any survivors among the 150 people on the plane,” the Comoros vice-president told Reuters news agency.

The plane belonged to Yemeni state carrier Yemenia Air, he said.

The three islands of Comoros are about 300km (190 miles) northwest of Madagascar in the Mozambique channel.

Vice-president Idi Nadhoim, speaking from the airport at the main island’s capital Moroni, said the accident happened early on Tuesday.

The exact location of the plane was not immediately known
